Caught up in the hectic Christmas rush? It’s time for a distraction.. It’s TMI Tuesday.

It’s that time of the week again Twisties, who’s back for another round of TMI Tuesday?

What Is TMI Tuesday?

TMI Tuesday is a series of questions generated by TMI Tuesday Blog. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and to share some personal thoughts and experiences. It is important to remember that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, only the answers of the author –  and that’s part of what makes this tag so awesome! 

How To Play TMI Tuesday

Copy the below TMI Tuesday questions to your webspace (i.e., a blog). Answer the questions there, then leave a comment below, on this blog post, so we’ll all know where to read your responses. Please don’t forget to link to tmituesdayblog from your website!

Send Me Your Questions!

Do you have something you’ve been itching to ask? Maybe something food-related, something a little bit kinky or something completely random? Have fun with it, then be sure to check back next Tuesday for my answer!

1. Do you have a favorite author? Who?

Ack, there is no real answer to this question. I grew up on Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl, then, naturally, JK Rowling’s Harry Potter. EL James’s Fifty Shades trilogy soon followed but actually just before that, Yolanda Celbridge, particularly House Of Maldona. I still have a copy of Karen Kendall’s Who’s On Top? , which is a favourite read of mine and for reasons I won’t go into… Are any of those my favourites though? Not really. More often than not, I can be found reading over on Psychology Today, from whoever has written there.

2. Do you make your bed each morning? Why?

Not always in the morning, buit definitely before bedtime! I try to make it when I get up, but these things don’t always go to plan. Still though, in the evening, I like to be able to relax in a nice, clean relaxing bedroom. I like to go to sleep feeling like the day is done with and not ready and waiting for me the next day. Also, sex in a messy bedroom? No thank you, I find it distracting. If there’s one thing I’m very picky about, it’s a clean and tidy bedroom.

3. What is one recipe that gets you through busy, hectic times?

Goodness, do I have to pick just one? We really like Gousto’s 10-minute meals and one-pot meals, but picking one? That’s a question. Actually, I’m making Gousto’s one-pot chicken and red pepper orzo for dinner tonight, which just so happens to be a favourite, so let’s go with that.

But also the 10-minute Moroccan lamb & pistachio tagine which I’m making for dinner on Monday. I told you I can’t pick just one!

Oh, and a top tip: If you get tempted to try out the orzo, add a generous dollop of soft cheese. It makes it even creamier! You’re welcome.

4. For therapeutic venting, who do you call–friend, sibling, parent, significant other?

Haha! Any of the boys plus Mum… they’re all used to me by now! Matt probably gets the bulk of my “So I was thinking… ” moments though, normally in the dark at 3AM, right when he’s trying to sleep! Mum and I can easily talk on the phone for 25 minutes without a problem. Bill and I talk often too, but probably not as often.

Oh, and then there’s Big Ickle Bro, my baby brother… what can I say? The girl’s a chatterbox!

5. When did you last de-clutter the camera roll/pics on your smartphone?

People do that? Honey, I’m a very busy girl…

Bonus: What is the subject of your next blog post?

You’ll just have to wait and see! Or, you know, come back Friday to find out 😉

That’s it from me for this TMI Tuesday! Join me next week for the next round! Do you have any questions for me for next week? Don’t forget to leave them in the comments below!

Until next time,

Stay safe & have fun,

Helen xx
